After working over 15 years as a staff physical therapist and a director of physical therapy services, Mark Ware started The Strength Center in 2003 out of a strong desire to provide hands on, effective and lasting pain relief for those suffering from musculoskeletal problems. At The Strength Center, we will provide you with the highest quality of care available and do it in a non-invasive and cost effective manner.

You will work closely with our therapists from the beginning to the end of your experience with us. Our relationship will start with a one-on-one evaluation with a licensed physical therapist. We will guide you through a treatment plan that has been specifically designed for your needs.

Our specialized training in pain relief techniques and manual therapy lead to rapid results. These treatments are used in conjunction with individual strength and flexibility programs to expedite your return to normal life activities.

At The Strength Center, we strive to treat you like family. We have a strong desire to share our knowledge with each patient in order to facilitate long-term recovery and elimination of pain.

Why Choose a Private Practice Clinic?

The Strength Center Physical Therapy is 100% physical therapist owned. What is the benefit of a private practice versus a clinic associated with a physicians office? We will leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions, but here are some facts:

  • The studies indicate that there were more treatments provided to those patients that attended physician owned clinics (visits per patient were 39% to 45% higher).
  • The cost was greater for those patients that attended a physician owned physical therapy practice (both gross and net revenue per patient were 30% to 40% higher).
  • Studies indicated that licensed and non-licensed therapy providers spent less time with each patient in physician owned clinics.
  • Patients seen by physicians who owned a physical therapy clinic had a 66% referral rate to physical therapy. However, physicians that do not have a financial benefit from a referral to a physical therapy clinic had a 32% referral rate. The result: A $233 million dollar difference per year in costs.
